Additional comment
Moisil 1957: Am impresia că tipul de pe faţa acestui pond, care nu este destul de bine conservat, nu reprezintă un cap de leu, căci pe margine se văd indiscutabil vîrfuri de raze. Deci este mai logic să admitem că avem a face cu capul lui Helios. De altfel, pondul seamănă foarte mult cu cel de la [Moisil 1957] nr. 5.
